73 lift kit?

hey everyone new to this forum. looking to lift my 73 f250 and was wondering what would be my best options. seems to be that most sites only have kits for 80 or newer 250s or older 150s. so would a lift kit for a f150 work for my f250? im looking to fit 37s less than 700 on a kit.

A 150 has coil spring/radius arm front end. A 250 has leaf spring front end. Rear end springs are also wider I believe.
Here is just what the Dr. ordered:

37s on less than $700? That's gonna be tough....

Consider:
Ford F-250 suspension lift kits : Rocky Mountain Suspension Products
4-Inch Lift 66-77.5 F-250 High Boys

Sounds like a crappy shop. Time to cut your losses and find another. That's why for 99% of my stuff I just do it myself then i know it's right.
